Somewhere, perhaps in a four-star hotel while eating chocolate cherries and sipping champagne, Bear Grylls is breathing a sigh of relief: His primary media rival, Les Stroud of the Discovery Channel’s popular Survivorman series, has announced he plans to hang up his cameras and end the show after the upcoming third season.

Sad news for TV survival junkies, to be sure, but all is not lost: Stroud plans to return with a series where he follows in the footsteps of famous explorers. 

Ever wonder how Grylls’ and Stroud’s techniques really work in the wild? Our man gave them a shot in “I Will Survive.”
